Description: (transcribed from Dave's text included with the packaging of these prints)
|Now that our series of Senshafuda prints is well under way, it is time to introduce you to the members of the team who are creating them. I mentioned their names with the previous set, but let's meet them properly this time!
Designer: Kaori Seki (26) In her late teens Seki-san became interested in traditional ukiyo-e prints, and soon began creating images in a similar style. She now works as an illustrator, and takes part in frequent design events and exhibitions. In April of 2011 she participated in the Japan Art Festival in New Zealand, and has a strong desire to help promote Japanese art around the world.
Tsunehisa Sato (27) Sato-san is the 'freshest' of our three fresh faces! After developing an interest in becoming a carver in the traditional style, for the past couple of years he has been studying and working under the tutelage of Motoharu Asaka, one of the most experienced men in the field. Sato-san has already been accepted into the association of professional printmaking craftsmen, and is clearly at what is just the beginning of what we hope will be a long career in the field.
Printer: Hirokazu Tetsui (35) Tetsui-san was born in Tokyo into a printing family (his father has been a wood-block printer all his life). In addition to his contributions to the family workshop,Tetsui-san does demonstrations at exhibitions, and in Novemberof 2009 was sent by the Culture Ministry to perform demonstrations and promote traditional woodblock printmaking at a 'Russia-Japan Friendship Society' exhibition in St. Petersburg.
We'll meet some of the other participants in a few months, when the next Senshafuda set is released. I hope to see you then!
Packaging: The three prints are packaged inside our 'patented' Roll-up folder, as illustrated in the Spring senshafuda set.
Here are the three prints individually, linked to enlargements:
Note: although our senshafuda prints are part of a seasonal series, they are not being sold by subscription; each package of three is sold individually. You are of course free to collect them all though, and purchasers of this set will be given an Early Bird offer when subsequent sets are ready, to ensure that your collection can remain complete, if you wish.
We here at Mokuhankan hope you like these new prints that we have created, and that you will consider adding them to your collection, or using them as gifts for a friend.
